1977 was a year of street protests but also the year of a very unique demonstration of solidarity when directors, actors, writers and technicians came together to protest against the lack of rights of film workers and the unemployment that resulted from decline in production because of an oppressive censorship regime. Many of those who took part in a march from Istanbul to Ankara recall the journey and archive footage, photographs and headlines bring a landmark event in Turkish cinema vividly back to life.

* 38 years after the march to Ankara, a discussion with Aytaç Arman on Turkish Cinema, chaired by Sevinç Baloğlu
